If this is true, it needs to be officially announced now. How can people possibly make travel plans if this is not released until this evening?

With Spezza getting healthy, i would think the pens would be wanting to start as soon as possible.


I welcome Spezza back. He better be 100%, with back issues you never know. Anything to disrupt their room is welcomed by me. Sure Spezza is a talented center but this Sens club has managed quite well without him, adding him might be a chemistry hindrance at this point.

I don't see him coming back until late in this series at best. Might be earlier if the Sens get into trouble.

The league had to have these plans in place yesterday. Last night's games did not change anything. This affects employees at the arenas, hotel rooms, fans travel and work schedules, etc.
Why not release the information?

One other comment: NBC has to be rooting heavily for Boston tonight. They do not want the 2 Eastern series to both have Canadien teams. This takes the games off afternoon weekends due to Hockey Night in Canada, and they also lose a major US market if Boston loses. They caught a break with Detroit winning so they can still show CHI-DET on a weekend afternoon. I have no problem with this, evening games are much better.

I think it would be pretty cool if Toronto won. I traditionally hate that team, but I kind of like this team.

Tues/Thurs/Sat wouldn't allow for complaining, so Fri/Sat is better.

Rossi must be reading this thread because he tweeted that there are no finalized dates, just "plans". Hi Rob!

The back-to-back Friday/Saturday with travel in between is so that Bylsma has an excuse to start Fleury :P

I wouldn't be surprised to see Lehner start one of those games for the Sens, actually.

I'll bet you $2 billion that Lehner doesn't start one of those games absent an injury to Anderson.

The Power played an experimental Sunday afternoon game this year for this purpose -- to see if it would work, and they drew a pretty good crowd of 6,600 people if memory serves.

Don't ask me why I know this.

If there is a game on Saturday the Power would go to Sunday at 2 PM.

Personally rooting for Wednesday.

I think it'll depend on the shape of the series after two games, and that applies to both teams. Either way, it's risky.

Tuesday and Friday seem set. They'll play Saturday on HNIC if the Leafs lose tonight and on Sunday if the Leafs win.

What makes you say Friday instead of Thursday for game 2 if they start tomorrow?

Don't know but Friday and Saturday night would be nice to get together with my freinds for weekend hockey playoff fest. We just can't watch a game on a weeknight since we all got kids. Just don't be a noon start on Saturday!!!

Looks like Game 1 Tuesday and Game 2 Friday. Game 3 is Saturday if Leafs lose tonight and likely Sunday if Leafs win.
